Owner description: This 19th century piazza has undoubtedly the best panoramic view of Florence. The square is decorated with copies of Michelangelo's sculptures, but it's the view people come here to see.

“Best bit in florence”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

If your only here for a day trip - GO to Piazzale Michelangelo. It is absolutely gorgeous, we spent about an hour up here, as it is so peaceful. If you are here for a few days then go once in the day and once at night, as you will see the city light up :D

“great view”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Although it's a little bit of a trek to climb up to the statue -the view of Florence makes it worth while. Also good to note that it takes you right by beautiful rose gardens and if you are there in spring, the iris garden is right around the corner -and worth a visit. There are also two churches up there that we explored. We didn't find a food place to eat up there -but there is a cute restaurant/wine bar near the base -Fuori Porta.

“views of the city are breathtaking”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

the piazzale itself isn't so much the drawcard, but the views it produces are. You can see a wonderful panorama of Florence. To the left you can even see the ancient city walls and the stark contrast between the rolling hills and olive trees on one side of the wall and the city buildings on the other

Reviewed January 11, 2014 via mobile

The holder of the best view in Florence!! Found the best time to visit this beauty is either morning on a lovely day or sunset is also amazing. Spent a good couple of hours up there and got some amazing shots. Also check out the church
